My 81 year old mom-in-law, who is currently visiting us from Fiji, suffers from high blood pressure and takes 3 different medications for it. So, since her arrival, we've been monitoring her BP closely. The first week she was here, her average reading was 163/83. I'm told it seldom goes below that and that her physician just passes it off as old age. The second week of her visit, her BP averaged out to 157/81. The third week was even better, 148/79. Now, after being here just over a month, her pressure is down to 118/70. That's better than mine! My mom-in-law is not accustomed to our winter climate, so she mostly just stays indoors reminiscing over old times and relaxing in front of the TV. She really enjoys Hindi films, serials and comedies. I don't think I've ever heard that woman laugh so hard. She tells us that this is the first time in her life she's ever been able to just put her feet up and watch a movie all the way through. She's always lived within a large extended family structure and virtually never gets that opportunity back home.
